Auricular schwannoma– A rare presentation
Keywords:Auricular schwannoma, External ear, Pinna
Schwannoma or neurilemmoma is a benign, slow growing tumour that arises from the nerve sheath consisting of schwann cells. Histologically, it shows encapsulated, well circumscribed lesions composed of different cellular patterns and arrangement. It usually arises from superior vestibular nerve in the internal auditory canal. Here, we report a case of schwannoma that was located on the external ear which is of rare occurrence. Only a handful of such findings has been reported in the literature so far.
